Millbrook House is a purpose built residential home, which features all the living areas on the ground floor and bedroom areas on three floors that are serviced by a modern passenger lift to provide an excellent level of nursing home care. The living spaces are both spacious and plentiful so as to provide residents ample room to explore, wander freely around, as well as being able to find that quiet area for some down time.
All rooms are tastefully decorated and we encourage our service users to personalise their rooms with their own items of furniture, pictures and ornaments. Each bedroom wing has its own specially adapted bathroom and a total of four different type of bathrooms are available within the home, which enable us to cater to all levels of disability.

PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Millbrook House is an example of a more progressive, open minded approach to residential care. Our residents are respected as individuals and we do our best to cater for their every need. We recognise that the necessity of moving into a nursing home and requiring help with personal tasks can feel like a loss of independence. We therefore do our best to ensure that this transition takes place with as little stress as possible.
We value our fully trained and friendly staff as our greatest asset, which is why we have excellent staff retention levels ensuring continuity of care for our residents, which enable special relationships to be formed between carers and residents. We provide 24 hour nurse coverage with additional trained nurse cover during the day.
Our quality trained staff will be on hand to help to support our residents in a manner that is both professional and unobtrusive, promoting independence as well as a sense of well-being and security. Our philosophy states that attention to detail makes the difference and our staff are trained, as well as prepared, to go the extra mile. All residents are treated as individuals and our focus will be on what they can do for themselves, and not what they are no longer capable of.
